There are great radio critics: Gillian Reynolds told Desert Island Discs recently that she’s ruined people’s lives through what she writes. It’s been said of John Crosby that he made “the most brainless radio programme” worth a listen. And Philip French shaped the taste of Britain’s radio listeners despite most of us focusing on his words for films.
But these reviews won’t ruin anybody’s lives – partly, I’m sure, because nobody of any real note will read them. And they won’t attempt to portray any show that’s clearly mind-numbingly dull as, instead, striking to the point of Eurovision. This is simply a hub for variety: collated programmes and some thoughts to go with them. Who knows, you might even find something interesting.
